This shook my core yesterday. Can y'all please look at these verses who read the 1611 KJV. I feel like the KJV like all of them has changed...I know I use NASB more these days, but I never remember the Bible reading this way.
But also out of the Bible too. It really shook my core yesterday where I'm questioning a lot of things.
Mandela Effects: The top 300 list December 2018 - Alternate Memories
Some years ago I was talking to a friend of mine one day about the grace of God.
This friend pastored a small church where we lived and it was a successful church.
We had discussed the things of God on a few occasions.
This particular day we had an in-depth chat. The grace of God being the main subject.
We went back and forth about the things we understood about the grace of God.
We looked at God literally birthing his own children and them being everything God had planned before the foundation of the world, Ephesians 1:4
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
I went on to say I believe this is the ultimate of God's grace of how he takes...
70 Jesus answered them, Did not I choose you the twelve, and one of you is a devil?
Judas Iscariot was a devil. The Lord Jesus knew who he was before choosing him as a disciple, a devil. Since Judas looked like a man, how could the Lord say that he was a devil?
In the same way Satan is referred to as a serpent, the Great Dragon, and can disguise himself as an angel of light, Judas could also look like a devil. Today this is known online as shapeshifting. Anyone can see this supernatural behavior on YouTube by searching words like "shapeshifter eyes", "shapeshifter reptilian", or "shapeshifter compilation".
Supernatural parentage is accounted for in the Holy Bible.
For example, Genesis 3:15.
15 and I will put enmity between...
"By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
I know there are many ways to love a brother or sister in Christ but, what should that look like to those "without" the Church? Just looking for others thoughts ♥
Metanoia is a journey of changing one's mind, heart, self, or way of life. In the bible it is translated as "repentance."
Metanoia means "after-thought."
But it is more than a one-time event or action. Repentance is a process of going from being carnal to being spiritual in Christ. We are to be renewed in our minds...transformed into a life that resembles Christ in every way.
So much of the Christian life is a process. People like to say they have arrived at salvation or conversion. But these are in fact just steps in a journey that take us to a full stature in Christ. A race isn't finished until the end....otherwise there is the certainty of disqualification. We will need perseverance to see the process through to completion....
The work has already been done, so let us rest in His work. OSAS is not a doctrine, it's rather the result of what Jesus already did for us. The carnal mind can't conceive that it is finished or that the gift of salvation is free, so those who oppose it place a price tag on themselves. , they work for the gift not knowing they're in defiance to God and the work He already did.
They fear God instead of seeing Him as a friend, instead of accepting the truth that has been given to them through the internet. I suppose there is no difference in the Pharisee up in Jesus face 2000 year ago and Thomas wanting to see the nail marks in His hand vs his saints on the internet sharing the truth. Blessed is the one who does not see and yet...
14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
Paul had several great confrontations in his life which I think were bitter and difficult. Every one of them was over the issue of law.
Paul never had a problem over God's grace. It is the same today, you never hear of those that are in grace kicking others out of their fellowship.
It is always the law that separates and divides us. In law there is only divisiveness because that is the very center of law.
The Apostle Paul had the supreme test of battling law.
When the gospel went to the Gentiles it was a gospel that had no law in it.
It was easy dealing with the Gentiles,...
My 2nd Ex-Wife will be Raised from the Dead in the Name of Jesus Christ
I have been counselled by my Holy Spirit in the recent past that she needs to be raised from the dead. She sufferred a wrongful death. I also have been reminded to keep praying for her.
Raising the dead is for disciples of the Lord to do, as He commanded them to do so.
I think it is a wonderful thing that someone can be raised from the dead to then follow the Lord to eternal life. I believe Brenda will be raised from the dead.
You might like to check John 8 particularly verses 30-59
It opens with, in verse 31 'to the jews who believed on him' and finishes with verse 59 'at this they picked up stones to stone him'
Surprise, surprise.....Jesus addresses these same Jews who believed on him....yes, they thought he had merit, perhaps for their own purposes and yet a few verses later were ready to kill him. Now isn't that an interesting take?
Is it any different today?....many loudly proclaiming their allegiance but with knives in their pockets. How do they do it? ....diffusion, misunderstanding (deliberate?) the insistence on views that have them deceived all the while claiming to be 'Abrahams children' ....seekers for their own temporal glory and language...
